Accused child molester Ed Kramer will go on trial next week after more than a decode of legal delays and stalling. More than a decade ago, Kramer was accused of molesting two teen-aged boys.
In addition, Atlanta magazine has more details on Dragon-Con officially dissolving its relationship with co-founder Kramer:
“‘DragonCon’s relationship with Mr. Kramer is officially over,’ Euston told us. Euston said the amount DragonCon paid Kramer was a ‘small amount’ over the amount company officials had offered Kramer over the summer, when company officials formed a new company—Dragon Con, Inc.—and absorbed the old company—DragonCon/Ace, Inc.—effectively dissolving it. All that remained was paying Kramer for his 2,050 shares. Kramer, with his lawyer acting as his proxy, had dissented to the merger in July and was offered no new shares in the new company. When he rejected DragonCon’s offer as insufficient, the company sued him in Fulton County Superior Court in August to seek a judge’s intervention. Today’s settlement precludes the need for that. Euston said terms of the settlement were confidential. McNeill Stokes, Kramer’s attorney, did not immediately return a call for comment.
